Romeo Brera with KW coilover suspension.
12th April 2006.
automotive GmbH have just
developed their approved
for the Alfa Romeo Brera
and the Porsche Cayman S,
without forgetting the... cheeky Fiat
Grande Punto which gets KW
sports springs to make it even more agile.
First, the nastier two, as the Brera
and Cayman S get a hotter
appearance with enhanced handling.
Thanks to the Giugiaro sporty design
signature, the 2+2 seater Alfa
Romeo Brera again has
created a real "face in the crowd". But for
those who do not settle even for that, KW emphasizes this
coupe personality a step further with the three variants
of its well known coilover
Grande Punto with KW sports springs.
Put simply, these coilover suspensions
enable a customized lowering of 20-50 mm at the front and
25-55 mm at the rear axle of the hot coupe which power can
go up to the 3.2-litre
V6 24-valve engine
which delivers 191 kW (260 bhp) at 6,200 rpm, with a peak
torque of 322 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
On the other hand, but still within the
Fiat Auto realm, the Fiat
Grande Punto turned out to
be a very successful model (best selling car in Europe for
the first two months of this year).
Yet, some hot tastes might argue,
finding it a bit too far away from the ground. The remedy
cannot be easier... as it can be found in a set of KW
sports springs which lower
the naughty Italian beauty by 30 mm at front and rear
axle, gaining at the same time a much more agile handling.
Cayman with KW coilover suspension.
Up from Italy now, to... Stuttgart,
where the Cayman rounds
off Porsche's product range,
slipping into the role of an agile, light sportscar, under
its bigger and more potent 911 brother. Well, the Cayman
too has the right to get even more agile, with KW coilover
For the Cayman
S, the Fichtenberg, Germany,
based specialist offers coilover suspension variant 3,
allowing drivers to adjust the ground clearance between 30
and 60 mm.
The three coilover suspension variants
suggested by KW are:
1 - Coilover suspension Variant 1
permits customised lowering of the suspension and creates
an optimised balance of sportiness, comfort and safety.
2 - Variant 2 is more for sporty
drivers who also wish to make modifications in the set-up
to achieve a more customised lowering of the suspension.
Thanks to the adjustable rebound damping, it is possible
to adapt the driving comfort to suit the driver’s
3 - With its separately adjustable
pressure and rebound damping functions, Variant 3 permits
an even higher degree of customisation to the suspension
and provides the perfect solution for those truly
technically demanding drivers.
All KW coilover suspensions are
produced in the unique stainless steel “inox line”
technology. This assures extremely high quality and
durability of the suspensions plus a long-lasting perfect
finish to match.
